Ladislas Starevich was a genius. Just this one film made in early 1930's is enough to immortalize him. Most do not realize how time consuming, creative and demanding stop motion animation is. It was and is(the few that still create it)much more difficult and creative overall, than computer animation.

Great film, but this version is missing about 6 minutes. Search for The Mascot Complete and Uncut to see the whole film.

L'ancêtre de Toys Story, en plus poétique. Tim Burton a du voir ce film et y penser en écrivant son Mr Jack. Un vrai plaisir d'enfant en le regardant, l'animation est techniquement abouti et l'histoire est émouvante. Starevich, le père spirituel de Nick Park ?
